Modify Heal Edges Feature Example (VBA)

This example shows how to modify an existing heal edges feature.




' Preconditions: Part document is open that contains

'               an imported part with the edges of

'               four faces merged (i.e., healed).


' Postconditions: The HealEdge1 feature was modified

'               so that the edges of only two faces

'               are merged.
